Loved the food and the service was really great and friendly - felt like we were long time friends. The table we sat at was a little too small and the music was a little too loud as my friend and I found it hard to hear each other sometimes. Overall great experience thigh and I'll definitely be back.

Second time here...Service was poor. Waitress shifted her attention to another table and forgot about us. Person who came to clean our table left half of it wet and dirty. We had essentially finished eating and forgot that one last entree was coming out...a shame that we couldn't eat it and compliment the other dishes. Half the table had dessert plates, while the other half had dinner plates (?). We were up sold on a carafe of a cocktail, but seemed very watered down (alcohol content was suspect). Overall, I wouldn't rush back.

Outstanding dinner tonight - took three guests who had never had the pleasure of eating at Shook - they cannot wait to return. As always, consistently delicious and a pleasure to spend time with the incredible staff.

The Green Shakshuka was extremely sour. Pancakes were super dry, we had to ask for syrup. We were given a wobbly table. As a result coffee spilt on friend's clothes. There was no accountability, as if it was our fault the table was wobbly. Should have at least replaced the coffee. Gave us food with no serving spoons...like come on. Try to serve Shakshuka with a fork! They were in such a rush to take away our utensils. Not bad but I really expected better considering the praise Shook has been getting.

Tables were too close together for COVID-19 (less than 1 meter apart from the next party). I asked if I could have my reservation for an outside table, but they stated they were fully booked. Outside tables remained empty throughout my meal; it would have been safer to eat outside. That part made me nervous. I was contemplating informing public health about this but did not want to put the server out.

The service was great! The appetizer I had was excellent - Muhammara. My main item (large plate) was not worth $25 - Tah Dig special that night which was crispy rice with peaches.

The food was excellent, best vegetarian restaurant experience so far. Flavours and textures were on point. The service was terrific, very kind and knowledgeable. It was our anniversary, so they treated us to dessert (chocolate mousse and passion fruit sauce) it was to die for. Can’t wait to go back :)

This is an amazing place for vegetarians who love to experience inventive flavours while still being reminded of home cooked meals from childhood days.

I really recommend the mushroom kibbeh if you like truffle, and the mujadara, if you want some lentil goodness.

Took my mom at 5:30pm on a Tuesday and it wasn’t busy when we arrived but every table was filled when we left at 7pm. Ordered two dips, the cauliflower tabbouleh, and the kreplach (little dumplings). Everything was fantastic and we were stuffed after. The aperol spritz was great too. No issues with anything - definitely coming back.

Shook was recommended by a friend who said she loved it! Its a cute place and have a good vibe to it our waitress was really nice and helpful. We made reservations for 830 and the two hostesses in the front made us wait until 9pm. First they misread that we had 3 people not 2 and tried to sit us at a smaller table, than they just said we had to wait until a table clears which normally honestly its not an issue to wait a bit 5-10 minutes but 30 minutes.....why did we make reservations if we were going to be waiting? There was also a table available but they didn't seat us there as it was "reserved." Someone who works at the front such as a hostess should be more quick on their feet in my opinion.

We had a reservation at 8:30. We got there a few minutes early. We weren’t seated until almost 9. The people occupying our table had already finished their reservation and had paid, but the servers wouldn’t ask them to kindly allow the table to be cleared. I’m 8 months pregnant and uncomfortable and I was made to stand in the street for half an hour. Hostess would only repeat that she was aware of the situation.

Awesome experience. Brought our 8 month baby and the staff accommodated us with better seating. However a restaurant should have some sort of baby/child seating available...even fast food restaurants and food courts have those. Other than that food was good and service excellent.
